Etymology. This specific epithet is based on the name of the Suruí tribe, an indigenous people inhabiting the known range of the Brazilian population of this new species. This specific epithet is treated as a latinized masculine noun in apposition.

Distribution. This species is known from the southwestern Amazon basin (Madre de Dios and Cuzco, Peru; Rondônia and Mato Grosso, Brazil).

Systematic placement and diagnosis. The systematic placement of this species is discussed above. Although not closely related, this species is phenotypically similar to H. argentata   , which is distinguishable by the ventral submarginal band being more jagged in Orotaygetis surui   n. gen. et n. sp., in addition to several genitalic characters, including: brachia pointing upwards in lateral view in O. surui   n. gen. et n. sp., whereas almost pararell to uncus in lateral view in H. argentata   ; apical process of valva narrow in O. surui   n. gen. et n. sp., whereas rather broad in H. argentata   ; saccus appearing somewhat broad in O. surui   n. gen. et n. sp., whereas rather narrow in H. argentata   ; phallus longer than valva plus saccus in O. surui   n. gen. et n. sp., whereas slightly longer than valva in H. argentata   .
